TVU Networks wins GSMA’s 5G Innovation Challenge

TVU Networks was selected as a GSMA 5G Industry Challenge winner in the “5G Innovation Challenge” category based on its submission, “How 5G Lowers the Barriers for Live Broadcast.” The GSMA (Groupe Spécial Mobile Association) represents the worldwide mobile communications industry.

TVU was also a runner up in GSMA’s Entertainment category and participated in Spain’s 5G Catalonia project for which telecom provider and TVU partner Cellnex Telecom received a GSMA Foundry Excellence Award. The GSMA 5G awards was presented during the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona.
The GSMA 5G Industry Challenge launched last summer to build on the success of the GSMA 5G Transformation Hub, which showcases the most innovative 5G solutions in the world and now includes more than 50 case studies. The Challenge is designed to show how industries across the globe are making the most of 5G and to recognise those leading the way with the most innovative use cases.

The six category winners were selected from more than 36 nominations. In addition to the winning entries, GSMA will be recognising the great work that is happening around the world by publishing many of the nominations as case studies on the GSMA 5G Transformation Hub.  

The strengthened bonded cellular connections, sub-second latency and increased signal quality of TVU’s technology provide an ideal solution for multi-camera live production over 5G in the GSMA Foundry Excellence Award-winning 5G Catalonia project. The initiative is part of Spain’s 5G Catalonia project - one of several 5G pilot development grants awarded by looking to energize 5G transmission in the Barcelona region. The live production demonstrated the expansive capacity of the TVU ecosystem within a 5G network, including the ability to transport and edit multiple HD signals remotely with a high-quality, low-latency broadcast output. Cellnex Telecom who supplied the 5G network will receive the award.
